We're trying to get a release out, not make more changes that are likely
to break things. And trust me, no matter how trivial a change like this
might seem, there are good odds that it'll turn out to take a month or
two before it's back to normal again.

There's no need for us to risk that, so we're not. Just move the packages,
don't merge them.

Cheers,
